Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke has been denied entry into the States because of having an Iranian stamp on his passport under Donald Trump's new border laws.

Thanks, Trump.

Former Sky Sports presenter Richard keys made the initial claim before Kaveh Solhekol confirmed the reports after Yorke had appeared as a pundit for BeIN Sports for United's Europa League game against Saint-Etienne.

The 45-year-old was reportedly attempting to travel to Miami.

Yorke played a charity match in Tehran, Iran, back in 2015 alongside fellow greats Roberto Carlos, Luis Figo, to name but a few, which has prevented his entry to the country.


Keys remonstrated the decision by lambasting Trump.
